5.0 out of 5 stars Little Known Classics, 13 Aug 2006
This review is from: Scharwenka: Piano Concerto 4; Sauer: Concerto 1 (The Romantic Piano Concerto vol 11) (Audio CD)
These two concertos aren't played nearly enough. The slow movements of both, but especially that by Von Sauer, are quite heart-rendingly beautiful, and literally stop listeners in their tracks. It took me a long time to find the recording in the shops and when a friendly and helpful proprieter took the time to search his catalogues for me he admitted he didn't know the pieces, but his eyes were opened when he put the CD on for me. He couldn't believe he hadn't listened to it before. Stephen Hough has an afinity with the piano that is to my mind unique, and he makes the changes from majestic to lyrical to tear-jerking and finally almost comically joyful. His technique is faultless and this has to be, without doubt, my favourite CD of all time.
